From the frozen Arctic realms of Norway, came snowboard prodigy Andreas Wiig. Riding with incredible power and technical ability, Andreas exploded onto the international snowboard scene in 2001. And since then, snowboarding has never been the same.
An overnight success, Wiig stepped squarely into the ranks of the pro competition circuit delivering X Games medal-winning runs as well as filming progressive movie footage. You could say it all came naturally to Andreas, yet he's also one of the hardest working athletes in the sport: as motivated as he is talented. There are few riders versatile enough to grasp back-to-back X Games Gold medals in slopestyle and also produce groundbreaking backcountry movie segments.
This big, imposing Norwegian rider is one rare breed of human. He is good in the air and he is good on the mic for interviewers speaking nearly perfect English with a dry sense of wit. He is notorious in the Keystone park and he is a sports celebrity in Norway. For his contest exploits and progressive movie parts, Wiig has earned his spot as one of snowboarding's best.
He is a walking endorsement for an array of signature pro model gear, from outerwear to boots, to boards, to goggles and so on. But there's a lot more to this guy than untouchable contest runs and ridiculous tricks. He is always on the move and always down for fun. Hang out with Andreas Wiig and his crew here at the website and you can experience the life and times of a snowboard legend in his prime.
